About Winchite Root NameHide

Formula:
☐{CaNa}{Z2+4Z3+}(Si8O22)(OH,F,Cl)2
The winchite minerals are defined as sodium-calcium amphiboles with A(Na+K+ 2Ca)<0,5 apfu and with Z(Al+Fe3++2Ti)<1,5 apfu.

The various species are defined on their dominant elements in the Z (= IMA C position) and W position in the formula
Z2+ position (= IMA C2+ position): Mg or Fe dominant
Z3+ position (= IMA C3+ position: Al or Fe dominant
W position: (OH) or F dominant.

On mindat.org we avoid using variables with the same symbol as elements and deviate from the IMA nomenclaure in that we use X rather than B, Z rather than C and (OH,F,Cl,O) rather than W.
Crystal System:
Monoclinic
